[ARCHIVED] Police remind citizens of E-Commerce Exchange Zones

E-Commerce

NORFOLK, Va. (NPD) – The Norfolk Police Department encourages community members to use the E-Commerce Exchange Zones when buying or selling items through mobile classified apps.

These Exchange Zones are designated safe areas to complete transactions and offer 24-hour video surveillance. E-Commerce Exchange Zones are located at all three patrol divisions:

First Patrol Division – 3661 E. Virginia Beach Boulevard

Second Patrol Division – 2500 N. Military Highway

Third Patrol Division – 901 Asbury Avenue.

This reminder comes after police arrest a man in connection with a buy/sell app armed robbery that occurred earlier this month.

According to detectives, around 6:30 p.m. on February 3, 2019 Douglas Lamont Moore, Jr.,D. Moore.jpg 18, robbed a woman at gunpoint in the 8500 block of Hammett Avenue after she agreed to purchase an iPhone he was selling on LetGo, a mobile classified app.

Moore has been charged with robbery and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. He is currently being held in the Norfolk City Jail without bond.

With the increase popularity of purchasing apps, Norfolk police encourage these transactions to be made in secure areas or in public places.
